I'm looking to put a reset switch on a bunch of pis. Model 3B+.
Looking at the header location there are two contacts, RUN and PEN.
My questions are:
1. I'm guessing RUN is the reset pin?
2. Does opening or closing the loop to ground set the reset state?
3. What does the PEN pin do?
The PEN is power enable used with HATs and such.
In order to add a reset you will need to connect a momentary type switch to RUN and to a ground from somewhere else on the board such as GPIO pin 6 or other ground pin.
Connecting RUN to ground will immediately halt the system in an unkind way of the RPi is running. When released then the RPi will reboot.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
